ATCP 93.605 Note

ATCP 93.605 Note
Based on definitions of “dispenser,” “dispensing area,” and “dispensing system” in s. ATCP 93.050 (38)
, and (41)
, respectively, the distances under this subsection are measured to the body of the device that measures and dispenses the liquid product, rather than to the distal end of the hose and nozzle which can be extended away from that device.
